Scott Brown must be a big fan of the par three, third hole at the Wyndham Championship, especially on Sundays.

The American golfer recorded a hole-in-one at the third for the second straight year.

Last year he was playing with Tiger Woods. This year his playing partner was Boo Weekley, which meant a significantly smaller gallery to witness the rare feat.

"It was about 25,000 less people there this year," Brown told the Golf Channel. "Boo said that's the first time he ever put a 1 on the card, too. Same thing Tiger said to me last year. I don't know."

It may have been the same hole, same round and same tournament but it was a different club used than the previous year.


"Last year opposite wind, one club less. Today it was a 7-iron and it was pretty much identical," Brown said.

"It almost landed pretty much in the identical spot, like a foot short of the hole and I guess, I can't see it from down there, but I'm guessing it just hopped in."

Brown went onto record a final round 65 to finish at nine-under in a share of 33rd place.
